High Atlas to the Sahara Cycle with Kate Leeming

15 Days Moderate-Advanced

Morocco's superb blend of culture, natural beauty and infrastructure make it an ideal place to explore by bike and the opportunities are both physically exhilarating and culturally infused. We begin in Marrakech, enjoying the 1000 year-old ochre-coloured city with fascinations at every turn, the old Medina and a blend of cultures. From Marrakech, our journey traverses the highest mountain range in North Africa to tackle the rugged, prehistoric, flat-topped peaks that are still used by the nomadic berbers. We cycle through the stunning Todra Gorge and ascend to cross the Djebel Sahro mountains and descend to the town of Alnif located on the southern slopes of this mountain chain. The last leg of our journey takes us into the lunar desert landscapes on the edge of the Sahara showing where we will spend the final night of our cycle in a desert camp under the stars. Our return journey to Marrakech takes us via Ouarzazate and the UNESCO World Heritage Kasbah Aït Ben Haddou. Escorted by adventurer and cyclist Kate Leeming, this trip is not to be missed.
